In 2020 the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the world we knew. Lockdowns and restrictions separated us during the pandemic. isolating us, each in our own space. Together with co-creators around the world, the production team recorded hundreds of stories from different stages of pandemic isolation. Most of the co-creators are not trained film professionals, just people of all ages who had an urge to document what was going on around. The videos are intimate windows into human life during and after isolation.

'Connections - No One Is an Island' invites you on an interactive journey following the emotional pathways that connect us across country borders. It is a novel multi-player film experience, where you interact collectively with the videos as you move through the emotional stages of the pandemic. Together we are guided to remember our experiences and envision our post-pandemic future.

In each screening you see 12 short stories out of 200. You see different stories every time you play the film. You are asked to react to the video clips by typing words. These words your group types shape your storypath, and they are also stored as tags that will affect the story for future participants. In other words you are co-creating the film experience every time you play and it is continuously evolving.

The film should be experienced in a Chrome browser, preferably in a quiet room with headphones to set the right atmosphere. The current version is a demo, so please inform us if you experience any technical difficulties.
